Fire Hydrant Blocked ... by Parking Authority Van!

When a fire truck responded to an emergency call in Philadelphia, firemen found that access to a fire hydrant was blocked by ... the Philadelphia Parking Authority van!

The visibly perturbed firefighters politely asked the PPA agent — who sprinted back to her vehicle with the quickness once she realized how terrible she was about to look — to move the van, to which she responded something along the lines of, "I was only there for a second, I'll move it right away!" Strange, I feel like I've heard that somewhere before.

"If it is a life and death situation why don't they just shove the offending vehicle out of the way with the fire truck. Why waste time looking for the owner??"

Why bother trying to comprehend the article when you can just spout off about the situation?
